ABA Therapy for Children with Autism

ABA therapy for children with autism reinforces positive behavior, while reducing challenging behavior. Because individuals with autism are most receptive to learning and unlearning behaviors at a young age, ABA therapy is most effective on children with autism ages 2 – 6. ABA therapy for children with autism is research-based and grounded in the science of learning and has more than 30 years of research demonstrating its effectiveness.

What Does ABA Therapy Do for Children?

ABA therapy for children with autism increases communication, socialization, and independent living skills in children with autism. Behavior Technicians and Board Certified Behavior Analysts work with each child to address specific behaviors with an individualized treatment plan. The goal of the treatment plan is to replace challenging behavior with positive or desired behavior, until the positive behavior becomes the child’s natural response.

When Should ABA Therapy for Children Begin?

ABA therapy for children with autism sees its best prognoses when a child begins therapy early. Research indicates that ABA therapy is most effective when children are younger than 5. Studies have demonstrated that beginning ABA therapy for children as early as age 2 led to significant cognitive and adaptive skill growth.
